      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7, 9.
      2 folds, BU calls $0.05, SB calls $0.03, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.15)
      7, 7, A (3 players) SB checks, Hero bets $0.15, BU calls $0.15, SB folds.

      Turn: ($0.45)
      Q (2 players) Hero bets $0.35, BU calls $0.35.

      River: ($1.15)
      A (2 players) Hero bets $0.70, BU raises to $2.3, Hero calls $1.60.

      Final Pot: $5.75.

      His calls on both previous streets can mean that he got draw and wants complete them.

      What does mean his raise on river,
      if he got ace why not raise me before to understand who have better kicker to the ace or maybe someone as i have trips.
      Is it likely that he didn't complete draw and want simply steal the pot that i made.

      I would check/call river as standard here to induce a bluff from a busted flushdraw. It's also a bad river to bet on because most hands that will call/raise you have you beat (aces) - this is why check/call is simply better here.

      As played, river call is a must obviously :)

      Because the board is paired so he'll only get action from trips. He probably decided to think of it as "way ahead, way behind" until that other ace came and gave him top full.
